Friday Finish - Ethan's Carpenter's Star Quilt

Here's this week's finish - it is a baby quilt I made for my son.  It's only a year late, an improvement on this baby quilt for my daughter which was 3 years behind schedule.  Better late than never right?

It is a Carpenter's star made using Debbie Maddy's pattern which I just resized to make it 50" x 50".  The fabric line is La Petite Ecole by French General.

I love this label, I just wish that I made the font a little larger.  The quote is from one of my favourite poems -  "If" by Rudyard Kipling and says "Fill the unforgiving minute with sixty seconds' worth of distance run".  This is something that I strive to do but have to admit I often run out of puff.

I  inserted a strip of scraps into the backing fabric to make it a little larger.  I think it looks sweet and is also a good place to pop the label.  I love the alphabet fabric from this line - so gorgeous!

I am linking up with Amy Lou Who's friday finishes  and Crazy Mom quilts -  pop on over and see what else has been finished this week.


  1. Ethan is a lucky boy to have such a clever and lovely mummy.

  2. What a lovely quilt and wonderful sentiment. I am sure Ethan will treasure it.

  3. Hello Shontelle
    I love your quilt. Ethan is very lucky. The fabric choices are fabulous.
